President Joe Biden, in an interview Friday with "CBS Evening News With Norah O'Donnell," said that former president Donald Trump should not receive intelligence briefings because of his "erratic behavior unrelated to the insurrection."

"I just think that there is no need for him to have the intelligence briefings," he said. "What value is giving him an intelligence briefing? What impact does he have at all, other than the fact he might slip and say something?"

This decision comes after a review by the White House.
